Striding Lion Performance Group

Organization Type

In 2014-2015 Striding Lion celebrates and builds on 14 years of innovation and excellence on the stage, in the studio, and in the classroom. Through the collision of live performance and new media, a stalwart commitment to original music, and the inventive use of both traditional and non-traditional performance spaces, our premiere-filled Striding Lion Performance Series challenges audiences to move beyond the limitations of a passive “viewing” experience and engage more immediately and kinesthetically with the content and material presented. Through the development of full length dance theater works under the Artistic Direction of Annie Beserra, the cultivation and curation of new workshops and performance shorts by our company members and community of artistic cohorts in our regularly produced Salon Series and Vaudeville Roars Performance Cabarets, and the development of the next generation of performers and makers through our extensive educational residency programs, Striding Lion continues its commitment to facilitating collaborative community at large and to making the process of performance development more accessible and transparent to our audiences, students, and supporters.
